Why Are Women No Longer Finding It Disrespectful to Refer to Husbands As ‘My Partner’?
She will say something like this, “husband fixed my laptop”, or, ‘my partner fixed my laptop’, instead of saying, ‘my husband fixed the laptop’. Why is it becoming increasing offensive to refer to that person (chocolate) you share the same beehive as ‘my wife’, ‘my husband’, but at the same time you are very proud to refer to gadgets such as a laptops as truly yours?
Women have equal rights these days so they are more independant on what they say or do.
Some of it may have to do with how men have surrendered the position of provider or when they do provide like that there is a growing epidemic of infidelity that is cropping up sufficient to make women want to be more prepared and less desperate should anything like that happen to them. There is, therefore a sense of ownership in things that women pay for with their own money. That sense is added by many of the states having asset splitting laws that apply when divorces happen. My wife and I are very old fashioned and haven't changed how we refer to the other in public but most of our peers don't see marriage as such a permanent state as we do. Its sad really.
The same reason why they are not afraid to marry a woman! Our moral fibers have changed . . . 4 D worse!!!
These days, marriage often serves more as a merger than "'til death do us part" marriages of, say, 30 years ago. The economy plays a part in it. With women earning a wage to support the family, there is not the sense of traditional go-to-work husband and stay-at-home wife. Earning their own money, especially in two-income families, means they are more likely to claim possessions as solely theirs.
More women are going into marriage knowing more than half of marriages end in divorce. They keep a certain detachment and hoard possessions for when the end does come.
With the ease of divorce, most couples will rush into marriage to suit parents and friends, knowing when the novelty wears off, they can end it. The endearment of "husband and wife" never attaches.
In the politically correct state of the Union, some couples choose to call each other partner in support of GLBT rights to marriage.
Whichever answer applies to a specific couple, they are all signs of a paradigm shift of the society's view of marriage over time.

Is it fair to refer to the Tea Party as the American Taliban?I think I saw a bumper sticker that said this. Obviously, this would be a very liberal position, but are there any actual similarities? Is this a statement you would support or oppose?
